I've got a delicious Boozy Bourbon Gingerbread House Milkshake that tastes just like a gingerbread house and you can decorate it using your leftover gingerbread house decorating candy!Boozy Bourbon Gingerbread House Milkshake // Salty CanaryI also made tiny gingerbread men fudge to put on stir sticks for these milkshakes and they taste just like gingerbread cookie dough! Go ahead and make them and then bite their little heads off! Gingerbread House Milkshake // Salty CanaryGingerbread House Milkshake // Salty CanaryI decorated my milkshakes with leftover graham crackers and gumdrops and then added my gingerbread fudge men on a stick! If you have leftover M&Ms or ribbon candy, throw it on there! And the milkshake is made with vanilla ice cream, spices, and some of the leftover gingerbread fudge before it hardened, but you can also use gingerbread cookie pieces. So yummy! Gingerbread House Milkshake // Salty CanaryGingerbread House Milkshake // Salty Canary
Gingerbread House Milkshakes
Gingerbread House Milkshakes
  • 1.25 cups milk
  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 tsp ground ginger spice
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 cup vanilla frosting
  • optional: leftover gingerbread fudge, gingerbread cookies
  • optional: 3 shots of bourbon
  • Whipped cream:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup gumdrops
  • 1-2 graham cracker sheets
  • 3 gingerbread man cookies or gingerbread man fudge
  1. First, make your gingerbread man cookies or fudge.
  2. Next, make your whipped cream. Stick your bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes, then remove and add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 1 Tbsp sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla. Whip on medium-high in your stand mixer until peaks forms. Add your whipped cream to a pastry bag outfitted with a fancy tip. Set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. Then garnish your glasses. Use a knife to add vanilla frosting to the rim of each glass, then press gumdrops and graham cracker crumbles into the frosting. Chill the glasses in the freezer while you make your milkshakes. Next, top 3 skewer sticks with gingerbread man fudge or cookies to stick on top.
  4. To make your milkshake, blend your milk, ice cream, and spices in a blender. If you're making it boozy, add 3 shots of bourbon. If you want to add optional gingerbread cookies or fudge, add them in! Then pour your milkshake, top with whipped cream, add a straw and your gingerbread man on a stick. Serve and enjoy!

And if you want to add in some bourbon and make them boozy (and you might need to if you plan to drink these while the kiddos decorate their gingerbread houses), it may help to make your holiday spirit bright! Gingerbread House Milkshake // Salty CanaryWhat do you put on your gingerbread house?
